SIP Trunking is Hot!

ITEXPO logoI'm sitting in the SIP session at ITEXPO (sponsored by Ingate) and it's one of the most heavily attended sessions at the show. I counted 70 people in the room and people keep filling in. Scratch that, 5 people just walked in - it's now 75!

I had to stand in the back until an Ingate employee was kind enough to bring me a chair. Ingate makes firewalls that are SIP aware. One of the things heavily stressed during the session was the need for end-to-end SIP (no gateways) in-between to keep latency introduced at an absolute minimum.

Another point stressed was the need for SIP trunking providers and IP-PBXs to standardize on SIPConnect. The SIPconnect Technical Recommendation is an industry-wide, standards-based approach to direct IP peering between SIP-enabled IP PBXs and VoIP service provider networks. You can read more about SIPConnect on Rich's blog here, as well as on the SIPForum site.

The trixbox training sessions were also jam packed, but were on a lunch break when I went to stop by.

Stay tuned for more...
